Lite Broccoli, Potato and Chickpea Soup

 When ever someone is not feeling well in the house I like to make this, it's like a warm blanket, and you can double up on the garlic so it really helps you fight a sickness that is trying to bring 'ya down!

You will need;
A can of chickpeas, an onion, three cloves of garlic, two crowns of broccoli, four potatoes, salt & pepper to taste.
Dice onions and garlic.
Rinse, peel and chop potatoes, rinse and cut up broccoli, separating the stems and florets.
Ok! Let's make some soup!
Cover the base of your pot with enough oil to coat the base, and heat over medium heat.
Add onions and cook onions until transparent, stirring occasionally.
  Add potatoes and garlic and cook for one minute, keep stirring.
Fill the pot 3/4 with water and toss in broccoli stems, bring to a light boil then lower heat.
Salt & pepper to taste.
Empty can of chickpeas into a colander and rinse well, after lowering heat,
add chickpeas and broccoli florets, cook until potatoes are soft.
Refrigerate promptly and enjoy within four days!
